This is How Karada Can Ease Your Post-Vacation Pains

by Angel C. Aquino

Whether you spent your vacation walking for miles in a new country, hiking up mountains, or swimming at the beach, you’ll start to feel all the body aches and pains when you’re back in “the real world.”

Instead of getting a regular massage to relax yourself, take it up a notch by visiting Karada, a Japanese therapeutic center that aims to restore the body’s inner balance through muscle and bone alignment based on ancient Japanese techniques.

Before the session, a trained therapist assesses your current condition. Take this time to tell him or her about your problem areas so that he or she can recommend a suitable treatment for you. Don’t be alarmed if you hear your bones crack during the session—it feels really good after! Just relax and trust your therapist.

Here’s a rundown of the basic services Karada offers. There are different options to choose from depending on how much time you have: Energizer (20 minutes), Therapeutic (45 minutes), and The Bliss (60 minutes).

AP (Atlas and Pelvis) Balance

Recommended for: People who want to relieve body pains, improve posture, and boost stamina

This service combines the principles of chiropractic, seitai (body maintenance) and Judo seifuku (judo martial arts) to realign the atlas (neck and shoulders) and the pelvis. This combats stress and provides immediate relief from body pains.

Body Treatment

Recommended for: People who want to relax, strengthen their muscles, and improve flexibility

The body treatment is a deep tissue massage that reduces stiffness while energizing weak muscles. It also helps address temporary muscle pains due to strenuous activities. Combine it with the AP Balance for a 60 to 90-minute session that will both relax and rejuvenate you.

Indulge in a one-of-a-kind healing experience when you buy this bestselling deal for a 90-Minute AP and BT. It's valid in 10 branches!

Foot Treatment

Recommended for: People who want to improve digestion and detoxify their bodies

Your feet are the most beat-up part of your body, especially after a long trip. Pamper them with a reflexology treatment that doesn’t just feel good, it also stimulates your central nervous system, improves blood circulation, and helps eliminate toxins—this is especially useful after all the sinful food you ate during your trip!

So before you head back to the office post-vacay, drop by a Karada branch near you to avail of their therapeutic treatments. Your body will thank you for it.
